“Used medicinally, French Clay is  known to boost circulation, reduce inflammation, facilitate the body’s reparation of tissues and cells, and promote the elimination of toxins from the skin. Our French Green Clay is a naturally-occurring, earthy, mineral-rich element derived from various sources including volcanic ash, rocks, soil, or sediment.  The clay has a unique combination of 12 essential minerals, such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Silica, and Zinc that gives it an inimitable composition. French Green Clay attaches  to oil, bacteria, and impurities from the skin to eliminate them and leaves skin feeling cleansed, clarified, and balanced and with Immunocologie more HYDRATED.”, Karen Ballou, Founder of Immunocologie
